Through the summer and fall of 2015, EJN supported the creation of 40 in-depth stories about the world’ s most climate vulnerable people and places published in leading outlets throughout the world. A More Vulnerable World Story Grants provided an opportunity for EJN staff to work directly with journalists and collaborate on stories published in their respective media houses. Journalists selected for the opportunity were provided assistance from EJN staff to implement their story plans through editorial support and professional advice on multimedia techniques.
EJN collaborated with and/or supported journalist working on local stories reported in the Solomon Island Sun, The Zimbabwean, and the Daily Nation in Kenya, and Nepali Times as well as a number of international media houses such as Reuters, the Guardian, National Geographic, and climatechangenews.org. By following this approach we are able to provide credibility and audience to local reporters living closest to impacted communities. A compilation of these stories was launched in December 2015 during COP21 both online and as a print magazine distributed at the conference venue.
